👓 An insightful observer of the analytical solutions market

I’m constantly tracking the market of solutions for data and analytics. I’m trying to focus on finding the values and gaps of each platform to make sure I know the differences and I’m able to help people and organizations to make a wise and strategic choice of technology, architecture, approach and processes.

📈 Data-driven solution architect

I enjoy challenges of solution architecture, especially when it comes to data and information management. I have the biggest satisfaction when I see when carefully planned and designed architecture brings process optimization, automation, cost savings and business benefits to the Customer.

🏅 Active member of IT communities

I’m involved in technology communities. In 2007 I started Polish SQL Server User Group, which over time converted into Data Community Poland association, one of the biggest IT communities in CEE region, organizer of SQLDay events. For my involvement in communities Microsoft recognized me as the Most Valuable Professional several times in my career.

🎙 Experienced pre-sales, trainer and speaker

I love teaching people and giving technology in their hands to develop their careers and organizations. For many years I used to be Microsoft Certified Trainer. I’m a frequent speaker at the conferences and community meetups. Also, I had several book authoring and university lecturing episodes in my life.

☁ Public cloud enthusiast

I believe data and analytics are one of the major workloads can benefit the most of public cloud elasticity, agility and scalability. I’m a big fan of strategic thinking with some involvement of “fail early, fail often” approach when it comes to checking long term assumptions and hypothesis.
